The entire premise of theBrokerList is to stop the madness. There are lists for the CCIM, SIOR, CPM, RPA, on and on. There is the state by state license database, the groups lists and the individual company lists. It is really painful and truly obsolete. If we all work together and keep our very own lists data up to date, we are all equal. It also saves tons of times across our entire industry!!! Duh! Who likes overhead$$$? It costs money to keep all of these lists current and they never are. As an industry we need to manage our own information and direct it where we want to get it.
This website is a baby-step start to that concept. I am personally tired of managing who is where and how to reach this guy or gal I met at a CCIM event. I just want to go to one place where the movers and shakers of the CRE industry live and keep their information current.
If you want to share this passion and you see a need, please join us and add your name to the list. There is so much we want to do to make this list user-friendly and a powerful tool. Today we have gotten awesome feedback so keep the feedback coming. If the list is populated, there will be value in more programming of automation to manage the data. My entire goal is that advertising will pay for the website so please understand we want this to remain FREE to those on the list!
Feedback received today includes:
1. adding more categories of specialization
2. will it work with Excel
The categories were added – Multi-family/apartment and Investment Sales Both
We will simply save the Google doc file as Excel and email to those who wish to use it!
For now, if you want to use the list we can send you an Excel link, but you MUST be on the list or you cannot use it. Just send an email to [email protected] and we can send you a link to the list in Excel. If we can generate more use, we can make it more automated, but now it is very basic.
Also, we are self-policed so if you learn that anyone is abusing the list, please report this to us as well. We all have lists we manage now, so we are thinking this is a sensible group of professionals and none of us have time to be stupid.
